TPT is the result of nerdy therapist theory conversations and a drive to find the overlap between Internal Family Systems, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and experiential groups.
The culmination was less about "creating something new" but rather creating our own identities as therapists. We love what we do, and TPT is easier than saying all the things that we have been trained in and borrow from or inspired by. When it comes together in a session or in a group it is both all these things and its own thing.
